We have known one another for 35 years. Through those years, she has given me some wonderful gifts. One of those gifts was a copy of The World According to Mister Rogers, published in 2003. In this book, Fred Rogers says: "Human relationships are primary in all of living. When the gusty winds blow and shake our lives, if we know that people care about us, we may bend with the wind, but we won't break."
I thought these words were appropriate, as she will be spending her time in the surgical lounge of a local hospital while her husband undergoes very serious surgery. Having just a month ago received the diagnosis of pancreatic cancer, he will be undergoing the Whipple procedure today.
Please join The Husband and me - as well as many other family members and friends - in prayer for these dear friends and the entire medical team as NW goes through this very risky and dangerous surgery.
Thank you for reading. I really appreciate your comments.
